The compound that makes carrots and other vegetables orange is called carotene, named aptly after the carrot. The overall importance of these individual compounds to human health is the matter of some debate. In other words, the health benefits of carrots may not be associated with one single compound, but with the numerous vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and dietary fiber that it contains. One of the health benefits of carrots is well known: the carrot is rich in beta-carotene, which the body stores and converts to vitamin A as it is needed. Vitamin A deficiency leads to poor vision; thus, the age-old parental advice concerning the benefits of carrots to good vision can be scientifically supported. Many of the health benefits of carrots and other vegetables in the diet are related to the possibility of a reduced risk of cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends a diet rich in a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains to obtain the most benefits.
